Confirmed line-ups: PSV vs Arsenal – Ramsdale & Martinelli start for Gunners

By on October 27, 2022


Arsenal are at the Philips Stadion to take on PSV Eindhoven knowing a positive result will secure top spot in their Europa League group.

Mikel Arteta has rotated his squad once again in Europe but number one goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has to start between the sticks with Matt Turner – who has started the previous four European games – ruled out with a groin injury.

Rob Holding comes in to make his fifth straight start in the Europa League while Kieran Tierney is also recalled to start at left-back for Arsenal. William Saliba keeps his place in defence while Takehiro Tomiyasu starts at right-back so Gabriel and Ben White are the men to make way.

Albert Sambi Lokonga has been a regular in Europe for the Gunners this season and the Belgian youngster once again comes in for Thomas Partey in the holding midfield role this evening.

Granit Xhaka starts once again as does Martin Odegaard while Fabio Vieira is recalled. The Portuguese international appears to be playing on the right of the front three as Bukayo Saka is named among the Arsenal substitutes.

Gabriel Martinelli starts once again on the left flank so Reiss Nelson has to make do with a place on the bench. Eddie Nketiah is recalled to start up front for Arsenal so Gabriel Jesus drops out.

These are the teams:


Benitez; Mwene, Ramalho, Branthwaite, Max; Veerman, Sangare, Gutierrez; Simons, El Ghazi, Gakpo.

Subs: Drommel, Waterman, Teze, Junior, Obispo, Hoever, Ginkel, Ledezma, Til, de Jong, Bakayoko, Madueke
